Hello, haskellers.

I has made some rework of HDBC,
if you are interested follow the link

So, why did I made this ? Because I did not found good enough (inside and
outside) common interface
for database connectivity. What I mean is flexible and simple interface,
supporting arbitrary precision values
and providing convenient and minimalistic interface for just query

In ''roadmap'' in the documentation you can see, that I think, that Haskell
must have such interface which must
become the conveient base for other high-level interfaces, such as
Persistent and HaskellDB. Other languages, like
Python goes this way, so why we must not ?

I dont know will this patches accepted to main HDBC repository or not. I
will fork HDBC under another name
if necessary.

The patches are:
There is just PostgreSQL driver for now, but I plan to write some other
drivers as well.
Any help and pull requests are welcome.

My question is: what do you think about all of this? Do you think this is
good idea or this is not necessary
for now? I just want to notify the community about this and maybe find
